Area: 18,000 sqft
This lyric theatre seats 1,650 people and is located on a key waterfront plot in Bangaroo, the new central business district being developed in Sydney. Developing the technology established with the modular theatre, the building is constructed from pre-fabricated modular units and wrapped in a striking blue glass skin, illuminated at night and containing inset cafes and viewing platforms. The form is inspired by the black opal – the national gemstone of New South Wales and designed to be a new landmark destination to complement the Sydney Opera House across the bay.
